The Lucky Ones-Hurricane Sandy

We are the lucky ones.

Fiance, Alyssa, Dilly and I made it through the night with only a few power flickers and snacks. Though we did receive this notification on our cell phones last night accompanied by a siren ring...which was mildly terrifying.

Alyssa and I were able to venture out of our house this morning to take a walk and survey the neighborhood. Park Slope seems to have gotten away relatively unscathed...some trees down and some store awnings ripped away, but otherwise we are so lucky.

A lot of neighborhood restaurants and coffee shops are open with lines out the door (do not mess with our coffee supply) and people here, thankfully seem to be in pretty good spirits.

Fiance and I just got notified that our jobs are both cancelled for tomorrow and our phones seem to be on the fritz. I had an appointment to try on wedding dresses tomorrow but I'm guessing that's not happening! Probably a good think because we've been eating snacks since Sunday. Woops.

Hoping that you are all safe and sounds and sending good thoughts to the people who weren't as lucky as we were.
